Stations of the Cross by Fr Brian Kealey – 8

 The Eighth Station

 

Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem

 

 We adore thee Oh Christ and we praise thee

Because by thy holy cross thou hast redeemed the world

 

 First Voice

They cry and wail

So sad for him

Keeping the distance

Between those who care

And those who fail

Safe maintaining the illusion

Of difference

 

Second Voice

This cross is ours

The crucifixion shared

That starving child is yours

These families are mine

The agony felt

A part of the life

Of those prepared to take with Christ this path

 

I love you Jesus

My love above all things

I regret with my whole heart of having offended thee

Never permit me to separate myself from thee again

Grant that I may love thee always and then do with me what thou will
